Bright Stars 1-1 Sc Villa
Next fixture: Stanbic Uganda cup on Tueday 6th March, 2018
Sc Villa vs Bright Stars FC at Mutessa II Stadium, Wankulukuku, 4pm
Stand in coach for Bright Stars FC Paul Kiwanuka maintains that winning at home is very important for any club I the Azam Uganda Premier League.
Kiwanuka’s comments came shortly after Bright Stars FC came from a goal down to share the spoils with table placed Sc Villa on Saturday at the Champions stadium in Mwererwe.
The match ended 1-1 thanks to a Nelson Senkatuka strike 6 minutes after the Jogoos had taken the lead on 3 minutes through Martin Kizza.
‘We controlled the game but we wanted to finish them off in the first half. However we were unlucky as we never utilized our chances. We shall keep putting teams under pressure whenever they visit Mwererwe’ said Kiwanuka.
‘It is not an easy ground for teams coming here and they should expect that forever and ever. I thank my boys for the job well done against Villa’ said Kiwanuka
One of the calls by assistant FIFA referee Catherine Cynthia Nagadya didn’t go down well as Captain Senkatuka was called for offside despite video evidence clearly showing the player was onside after he had beaten Sc Villa skipper Bernard Muwanga.
‘Our players know how tough it is to play against teams pushing for the title. We still have to play Vipers and KCCA FC who are in the title race. Let us plan for the next fixture in the Uganda Cup against the same team-Sc Villa’ added Kiwanuka.
Bright Stars FC resumed training on Sunday afternoon but a different venue-Mutessa II stadium as it will be the same pitch for Tuesday’s Uganda cup match against Villa at 4pm.
‘This week is very tough for the boys. We have two important fixtures against Sc Villa and Masavu. We have planned well for them as we have a very god squad’ said Kiwanuka.
